  Packers | A.J. Hawk released    Wed Feb 25, 04:39 PM

Green Bay Packers LB A.J. Hawk was released Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: No surprise here given Hawk's price tag and his recent play. The move will save them $3.5 million against the salary cap in 2015. We could see a team like the Chiefs or the Broncos interested in the veteran inside linebacker even though he's not the player he used to be.

  Broncos | Candidates to be re-signed    Mon Feb 23, 06:20 PM

Denver Broncos impending free-agent LB Nate Irving, C Will Montgomery and TEs Virgil Green and Jacob Tamme are priorities to be re-signed this offseason. However, Irving figures to test the free-agent market with LBs Danny Trevathan and Brandon Marshall set as inside linebackers.

Footballguys view: Green is an underrated receiver who could take on a much larger role if Julius Thomas moves on in free agency. Tamme could return because he's a good special teams player and very close to QB Peyton Manning. Irving is a decent player--primarily as a two-down thumper--but he could draw some interest on the open market.

  Buccaneers | Mason Foster not in team's plans?    Mon Feb 23, 04:27 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent LB Mason Foster is not expected to be re-signed by the team, because his questionable coverage skills aren't a good fit for head coach Lovie Smith's Cover 2 scheme on defense.

Footballguys view: It might be time for Foster to move on. Foster seems to be a much better fit with the Atlanta Falcons.

  Falcons | Might pursue David Harris    Sun Feb 22, 11:15 PM

Updating previous report, the Atlanta Falcons are expected to pursue New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris if he hits the market. Head coach Dan Quinn was the defensive line coach for the Jets during Harris' first two seasons.

  Falcons | Likely interested in Mason Foster    Sun Feb 22, 11:14 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent LB Mason Foster is expected to draw interest from the Atlanta Falcons. Assistant head coach Raheem Morris drafted Foster when he was head coach with the Buccaneeers.

Footballguys view: Foster does a good job of finding the ball-carrier as the plays unfold in front of him. He could be a tackling machine for head coach Dan Quinn and the new-look Falcons defense.

  Broncos | Nate Irving receiving interest    Sun Feb 22, 01:29 PM

Denver Broncos impending free-agent LB Nate Irving (knee) is expected to be an option for some teams even though he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in November, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Irving is a two-down thumper as a run-defender, and he's better in coverage than some think. However, he's struggled with injuries during his pro career and that should keep his price down.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain faces fine    Sun Feb 22, 07:37 AM

Clarifying a previous item, free-agent LB Rolando McClain (Cowboys) faces a monetary fine for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy a third time.

Footballguys view: McClain finally had a decent season as a pro with the Cowboys in 2014, and now this. He would face a four-game suspension if another violation takes place.

  Patriots | Dont'a Hightower has surgery    Sun Feb 22, 07:22 AM

New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum and will be sidelined for approximately six or seven months.

Footballguys view: Hightower could be an option to begin the season on the PUP list if he is not on schedule or ahead of schedule in his recovery. He missed four games in 2014, but he still finished second on the team with six sacks.

  Bears | Chicago may pursue David Harris     Fri Feb 20, 04:51 PM

New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris is expected to receive interest from the Chicago Bears if he hits the free-agent market, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bears have a lot of defensive problems, but Harris will only be a portion of a fix. He could be a good rotational guy and John Fox does know his way around a defense though. It wouldn't be a bad landing spot for him.

  Falcons | David Harris expected to be target    Fri Feb 20, 04:46 PM

New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris is expected to receive interest from the Atlanta Falcons if he hits the free-agent market, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jets might be interested in bringing Harris back if the price is right, but he isn't worth the money on a huge contract. Atlanta is looking to reboot their defense again, and Harris could at least be a solid rotational player for them.

  Packers | A.J. Hawk had surgery    Fri Feb 20, 10:46 AM

Green Bay Packers LB A.J. Hawk (ankle) had surgery to remove several bone spurs from his ankle after the season. Hawk lost weight to try and compensate for the injury later in the season.

Footballguys view: Hawk still hasn't quite fulfilled the promise he once held and the Packers are going to have to look at other options to fill the middle of the defense at some point. As it stands though, Hawk might be able to play at a higher level than he did last season if he's 100% healthy.

  Cardinals | Larry Foote joins coaching staff    Thu Feb 19, 12:04 PM

Free-agent LB Larry Foote (Cardinals) has joined the Arizona Cardinals' coaching staff as he contemplates the future of his playing career. Foote will sign his contract with the team later this week, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Arians said Foote could return to playing before rosters are cut down.

Footballguys view: I suppose you could say he has one 'Foote' in retirement! No? Ok, on a less corny note, any time a player takes a coaching position with a team, it's easy to figure he feels like he is done. Foote played poorly in the latter half of the 2014 season, and by the end of it he his level of play tended towards terrible. We expect him to call it a career or if he doesn't to have little impact on the field at all next season.

  Cowboys | Sean Lee ahead of schedule    Thu Feb 19, 12:52 AM

Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) is expected to be a full participant when the team begins its official offseason program in April. 'I think Sean is ahead of target,' executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday, Feb. 18. LB Rolando McClain was signed to replace Lee, and the team isn't see where Lee will play in 2015. If McClain is re-signed, Lee might play the weak-side linebacker spot.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Cowboys here. We thought their defense would fall apart when Lee got hurt last year. Instead, the team came together and played strong in 2014. With Lee back, expect them to be even better this season.

  Jaguars | Paul Posluszny returning to form    Mon Jan 26, 11:17 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny (chest) said Monday, Jan. 26, that he is back to lifting after dealing with a torn pectoral muscle last season, and he expects to be 100% when offseason activities begin in April.

Footballguys view: The story with Posluszny will always read "what might have been." He's a fantastic athlete who can fly around the field. Posluszny arrives at the ball with natural violence and can be a disruptive player on the defense. Too bad he's almost always banged up. We're hopeful he can stay healthy and shine for the Jaguars defense in 2015.
